Finished the electrics on the lamp today very pleased with it, A few lessons was learned I ripped a 2'' X 2'' down the middle and surfaced planned routed a groove down the centre, Questioned myself was the groove big enough for the cable ignored my thoughts glued up turned the spindel and guess what the the groove was too small kicking myself i had to drill free hand with a touch of nerves .
